Located inside Costa Mesa's Mitsuwa Marketplace, Sanukiseimen Mugimaru offers a way to enjoy freshly made udon noodles. As you line up to order, you can actually see the noodles being cut from fat rolls of dough, and then boiled in large vats. There are more than a dozen styles—everything from straightforward kake to tonkatsu udon—plus an equal selection of tempura vegetables, as well as shrimp, fish cakes and even hard-boiled eggs. The basic soup will only set you back about $5.50, and the tempura averages about $1 per item. Remember to bring cash, since this fast-moving assembly-line-style noodle shop doesn't take credit cards.
